  1. sahandmohajer's rating of the film A Short Film About Killing

    Kieślowski is one of the rare auteurs who will stand out of a story's way. his signature is a careful observation of life granting the viewer an ineffable experience feeling much too real. nothing feels invented. even the score has the feeling of rising from the very fabric of the events unfolding before the camera.

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film A Short Film About Killing

    One of Kieslowski's masterpieces, this longer version of episode 5 in the Decalogue, brims with a hate-bleached yellowish atmosphere that pushes a young delinquent into an unspeakably cruel murder. As a meditation of sin both in terms of the act of killing and of the system's retribution, this is gripping and astute. Marvellously acted it is an uncomfortable and mesmerizing moral treatise.

  3. mikong's rating of the film A Short Film About Killing

    a description of toppling casual violence to another, unkind gestures spreading as a virus, slowly elevating into that horrible act. the dark shadowy part of the early frames makes the violence incomplete and soon after, a silhouette: the devil rear mirror with the murderer in the car. the act of violence is complete.

  8. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film A Short Film About Killing

    Killing is a raw, brutal film that follows an aimless man with the wish to kill without motive, the person he chooses to kill refuses to die and it all gets very messy. The film also makes a statement on the death penalty and is notable for playing a significant contribution in the abolishment of it in Poland. A director with the ability to change people’s perspective on a difficult subject is a winner to me.

  10. FISCHER's rating of the film A Short Film About Killing

    Une oeuvre étonnante, d'une désespérante fulgurance entre amer constat social, déchirante réflexion sur la peine de mort et cinglante démonstration cinématographique. Un grand moment de cinéma... www.cinefiches.com

  22. the prince's rating of the film A Short Film About Killing

    POWERFUL! BRILLANT! BRUTAL! BEAUTIFUL! POLAR OPPOSITE to Kieslowski's "La Double Vie de Veronique" France, 1991 - same cinemaphotographer - Slawomir Idziak - on both films . . .

  23. smndvdcl's rating of the film A Short Film About Killing

    So effectively horrifying that Polish authorities removed the death penalty from legislation as a result of Kieslowski's polemical cinematic activism. Two gratuitous strangling scenes bring the reality of murder to home. Without spectacle and razzmatazz, the bleak reality of death repels even the most hardened of spectators.
